Dancehall princess Shenseea will be performing at the popular Music and Arts Festival, Coachella, in April of this year. The festival will be held at the Empire Polo Club in California.
According to reports by the Jamaica Observer, the news was made public on Tuesday via the festival’s social media account.
Shenseea, as she is professionally known, was born Chinsea Lee on October 1st, 1996. Born in Manchester, the multi-talented performer moved to Kingston at a very young age. She grew up singing in her church choir.
Looking back, the artiste reminisced about being a shy girl growing up. Shenseea took the dancehall world by storm when she remixed Vybz Kartel’s song Loodi and then continued to build her brand and reputation by appearing on various Jamaican stage shows.
Throughout her career, she has been making major moves by doing collaborations with big international artistes like Jamaican-American Sean Paul, Calvin Harris and Charlie Puth, Fireboy DML and Chris Brown.
Coachella is an American music and art festival that began in 1999. The 2023 staging is scheduled for April 14 through April 23. The artist line-up features performances from Bad Bunny, Frank Ocean, and BlackPink as headline acts.
Shenseea was booked for performances on not one but two days of the festival, the 15th and the 22nd. Other international acts that will take the stage are Pusha T, Burna Boy, and Bjork, among others.
Shenseea, however, will not be the only Jamaican artist that will be gracing the festival. It will have performances from Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Koffee, and Chronixx, among others.
